First Full Moon of the Year – January 1, 2018

Scroll down to content

My very first astro-shot of 2018. It shows our Moon just a few hours from Full Phase.

The image was acquired from my balcony, using a small 65mm Refractor and ASI1600MM camera at the focal plane with RGB filters. The entire setup was placed and tracked manually on a simple photo-tripod.

And a Lunar Corona, shot only 20 minutes after the above images, with the 100mm lens and Canon 550D.
